Model year of each car needed. $50K for a 911 turbo seems really cheap

$50k will only get you a 996 turbo or high miles 997 (appx. 2006)

C63. I dunno about the used 911 around 50K it has to be a 996(I understand that you get a lot of car for cheap)but car is kinda old let alone that I've never been a fan of those headlights. GT-R I don't know but I have a feeling that some of those cars might have been beaten to hell or badly maintained since they're so pricey to maintain.

Chose GTR purely for its performance. However im not a big used car person. Smartest choice to me is to buy new. I hate knowing someone else used and abused a car. Id rather spend less have a slightly lower variant of car and know its unmolested.

GTR. I've seen so many chicks driving them it's not even funny. Bet you could pick one up that wasn't taken past 3k rpm more times than you could count on one hand.

The C63 is a great car, but damn, the GTR is just one step higher.

GT-R all day, every day amongst these 3.

Drove it on the track recently and it offers supercar performance at bargain basement prices. The interior is very good and the technology amazing. A little less engaging thanks to all the computer assists but flat out incredible.

Unless you know how to do your own repairs, stay away from the 996 Turbo. One of my neighbors has had a difficult time keeping his in working order, and it's a 2002.

i voted porsche turbo but then i realized youre talking bout the 996 turbo... i think you should go for the 997 turbo. or go for the 997 carrera S is you want something a little less expensive... the carrera S will be great drivers car with more than enough power to entertain.

if the 996 isn't an x50, i'd go for the c63. the gtr may run a train on it in every performance category but it really does look that bad

I used GT-R would be sweet if I was single but I'm not single and I have a daughter so a new C63 would be great!
